Santa’s Favorite Brownies

Are you following The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen on PinterestFacebook, Twitter or Instagram?  I love connecting with you!   Did you even know that Santa has a favorite Brownie?  I mean everyone thinks he wants cookies.  Well I can tell you that Santa told me a little secret.  He kind of gets tired of cookies. These brownies came as a direct request!

Santa's Favorite Brownies ~ Mounds Candy is the surprise ingredient that makes these brownie spectacular! I bet you also didn’t know just how much Santa loves Coconut! Well he does, he really really does! In fact he likes it so much that Hershey’s Mounds are his favorite candy bar.  When Santa asks for something you know you can’t NOT do it! I mean I want to stay on the Nice list…… Wouldn’t you?

So when he said that he liked brownies better than cookies and that he loved coconut and Hershey’s Mounds are his favorite candy bars, I just had to make these brownies!  I had to!!

Santa's Favorite Brownies ~ Mounds Candy is the surprise ingredient that makes these brownie spectacular! I know that these will soon be your favorite brownies also!  I have to admit there might not be very many left for Santa……..

I loved them as much as he will!  So I am just going to have to bake another batch that will be reserved just for him!

I have the MOST AMAZING brownie recipe from scratch that you will EVER make in your life!  You can find it HERE.  But, during the holiday’s you may want to opt for an quicker version in a box mix.  Now if  you have the time and really want to do it from scratch please do!  I actually used a box this time as, just like you I am juggling 2,000 things at once right now.  I used Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie mix.  Which is pretty much the only box mix I will use.

Santa's Favorite Brownies ~ Mounds Candy is the surprise ingredient that makes these brownie spectacular! Can’t you just see how rich and moist these brownies are? Just oozing with chocolate yumminess, and oh do you see that bit of white popping through?  Well those are chopped up Mounds bars!! Yes you just chop them mix them in the batter and then bake them right up!

What’s not to love with these brownies?  I think that I will be near the top of Santa’s list with these Brownies!
